|Spinach, blueberry, banana, walnut smoothie|
It's noon and I finally got to make my nutriblast smoothie. I blogged earlier about how much I was craving one since i woke up this morning. Everyone else slept in until 11:30 so I waited so the nutribullet wouldn't wake them; it is pretty loud.
This smoothie has: 1 tightly packed cup of spinach, half a small banana, a handful of frozen blueberries, yogurt (I small container), and 2 tbsp of walnuts. For liquid, I used unsweetened almond milk, which is only 30 calories per glass.
Wow, is this smoothie thick. It has a nutty blueberry flavor; I can't taste the spinach or banana at all. It has the texture and mouth feel of a very thick icecream shake. It's delicious!
My Dad is making bacon and eggs and it smells incredible; I love bacon, but there's no way I'm having any now; I'd be way too full and I still have more than have of my nutriblast to drink. I have to drive to Sudbury pretty soon, and it's a 4 hour drive, and I'd rather travel feeling energized by my smoothie than weighted down by fried eggs and bacon. Not that I have anything against bacon and eggs; I had eggs yesterday :-}.
